5 Reasons to Virtually Render Your Home Before You Start Construction

Take it from us: The future of homebuilding is here. We started Inspired Luxury Homes, Inspired Interiors’ newly launched sister brand, to bring the power of virtual reality renderings to homebuyers. We discovered so many ways that virtual renderings are superior to traditional still photos and floor plans while developing our first spec home, but we’ll start here by sharing the top five reasons.


1. You’ll get a 720-degree depiction of your new home.


Forget 360 degrees — our state-of-the-art virtual home renderings take you on a 720-degree spherical journey, from east to west as well as from north to south. Just imagine the opportunities presented by touring your new residence in virtual reality before you even break ground. Not only is the experience exponentially more satisfying, it’s also more informative, allowing you to fully explore what it will physically feel and look like in your new home.


Critical elements such as the actual distance between rooms, spatial relationships to consider and the overall flow of the space can be more viscerally felt in VR than a flat photo could ever provide.


2. You can better plan for design selections.


When you’re able to experience elements such as natural light distribution, available wall space and visual perspectives (what do you see when you first walk in the house? What’s in your line of sight as you move from room to room?), you’re better prepared to make important decisions regarding furnishings, artwork, vertical storage options, etc. Armed with this invaluable knowledge, you can consider how your current furniture and home decor pieces will fit in your new space, as well as what you’ll need to source and purchase.


You can also contemplate and envision how you’ll embody the space. Can you set up a home office that overlooks the backyard? Will you have a serene space for dinner parties without the competing noise from the family room? These are life-altering factors that can be analyzed in advance of breaking ground — what a gift!


3. Larger decisions are more easily (and definitively) made.


While virtually touring your new home, you get a more tangible feel for what design selections are desired from room to room rather than committing to expensive add-ons where they might not be needed. For example, bold patterns and textures might need to be rethought to more harmoniously fit the space. Why commit to crown moulding throughout the home when the ceilings are lower in the basement? You may not want mullions on every window pane.


With a virtual rendering, you have a much more straightforward and streamlined way to determine these types of decisions — because you can experience them before committing to them.


4. You’ll arrive at a more accurate analysis of cost and time.


Because virtual renderings offer you the unparalleled opportunity to arrive at these conclusions about your new home, you have a much better idea of what’s truly important to you and what you are willing to pay for. You’ll also get a more definitive list of materials needed beforehand, lessening the chance of buyer’s remorse and keeping your timeline on track.


5. You have a much better chance of meeting your move-in date.


We’ve all heard horror stories of new home owners building a custom residence, only to be displaced by delays. By partnering with a homebuilding company that specializes in virtual renderings, those informative 720-degree tours will bring your new home to life right before your eyes while managing schedules and mitigating unforeseen circumstances.


The result is a move-in ready residence that reflects you and your family’s lifestyle from the very beginning. Connect with the Inspired Luxury Homes team to bring your own vision to life. We’ve moved beyond asking you to bring us your living room — now you can bring us your land.
